Sportacus No More @ 05:06 pm

hamatokameko:

According to Facebook's "Stefan Karl Stefansson Official FanPage," Magnus Scheving has stated he will no longer be playing Sportacus and that he wore the costume for the last time two days ago. They are now looking for a new actor to fill the spot.

Does this mean we get another actor for Sportacus 10, or will we have a Sportacus 11? I don't know, but I'm certainly curious!


Edit: Article by Mark Valenti on the matter.

Turner announces LazyTown's Return for Season 4 @ 01:27 pm

mandrill:



Turner Broadcasting announced that a fourth series of award-winning children’s TV show LazyTown has been greenlit.

Acquired by Turner in September 2011, LazyTown is the only global entertainment brand dedicated to promoting health in a fun and entertaining way to young children and their families.

A brand new third series of the TV show (comprising 13 new half-hour episodes) has just been produced. It premieres this spring in the UK and rolls out worldwide throughout the rest of the year.

LazyTown charts the exploits of superhero Sportacus and his resourceful young friend Stephanie as they attempt to foil the madcap plans dreamt up by arch rival Robbie Rotten to make their town the laziest in the world. Filmed in high definition and with a clever mix of live action, puppetry and CGI, the new series will be supported comprehensively both on and off-air, including through a wide-ranging licensing and merchandising rollout, high level health-related promotional campaigns and online games.

Speaking at the Nuremberg International Toy Fair, Alan Fenwick, VP, Turner CN Enterprises, said: “We’re delighted that the investment we made into LazyTown Series 3 has already brought new exciting partnerships on board. This is an iconic brand all around the world - and with today's announcement about Series 4, which is scheduled for transmission in 2014, and an ongoing content pipeline for the brand in development, we’re looking forward to announcing many more new strategic partnerships shortly.”

“LazyTown is a key element in Turner’s strategy to grow its pre-school channel brand Cartoonito into a global force,” adds chief content officer for EMEA, Michael Carrington. “We’re thrilled with the way the latest series has worked out. As well as the return of all the much-loved characters, there’s a host of exciting new stories, some cool new gadgets and a fabulous new actress in the role of Stephanie. Series 4 goes into production very soon in our LazyTown studios in Iceland and promises to be even more innovative, engaging and energetic.”

I'm really surprised that there's been no discussion at all about Lazytown season 3. I knew that episodes had been filmed and were airing this year but lost track of the show. I was looking at TVguide.com and noticed the new episodes were airing on the kids' cable network Sprout.

As with alot of fandoms, this one has died off because of the lack of Lazytown in the United States. Well now that the 3rd season filming has wrapped and will finally air in probably under 6 months I'm hoping fans will start to come back and get the fandom going again. There's FINALLY a new dvd release (thats not out of print) that was released by NCircle in May, and another one is set to be released the end of this month. Shinju has also started work on her Lazytown doujinshi (manga) again. Things are slowly picking up and Let's get dicussions going again! :)

Jodi's Podcasts: Easter in Hell(nar) @ 09:35 pm

lazygothdocwho:
Not strictly LazyTown-related really, but Jodi has asked whether I could put a link here to his latest podcast.

"I just published a podcast about my Easter break in 2004 with fellow LazyTown puppeteers Julie and Sarah. Although not specifically about LazyTown, I thought some of the fans might be interested and wondered if you would spread the word. Stingy hates sharing, of course, but in this case he might make an exception."

Lazywiki and Lazytown on Wikipedia @ 12:14 pm

merlin55:
Lazywiki and the regular entry on Lazytown over at Wikipedia are both in serious need of updates and additions. Neither have mention of the " Go Step Go" single, Lazytown Festival event, The Viacom/Nickjr situation (this would be very helpful to people who are still wondering where the series disappeared too)....and according to the wikipedia article...its airing currently on nickjr? (yeeah..suuuure.) lol.

I updated a bit but am not very good at it so if anyone wants to help update feel free. It would be great to have more detailed info on those sites about US and Foreign merchandise, the original Icelandic books Magnus wrote, and changes to the episodes in various countries.
